The veg needs to be completely submerged. Anything sticking out will rot, not ferment. Your set-up needs to breath. No air-tight containers while it is fermenting. Once you transfer it to the fridge, air-tight containers are fine. My kitchen... (more)

Nothing is necessarily wrong with the way you are eating. If you are seriously wanting to change your pattern, just skip dinner one night. You will wake up and be hungry pretty soon. Then eat a large meal, and you probably won't want a large... (more)

Extra virgin is fine to cook with, just don't burn it (as with any oil). I've dumped coconut oil. Olive oil or butter is all I bother with anymore, red palm oil for vitamin E too.

Is vegetarian food good for health and thus it help to lose weight?

David_Moss 0 · March 04, 2013 at 10:33 AM

This is a completely misconceived question. "Vegetarian" is defined by exclusion, namely: food that isn't meat. Therefore it makes no sense to ask whether 'vegetarian food' is good, because this is just asking 'is food which is not meat good?' (more)

To build muscle you need protein, calories, and rest. Carbs definitely help the muscles pop, and provide a great source of calories. So I would try to add some starchy vegetables and some fruit to your diet. Things like Yuca, Potatoes, Sweet... (more)
